Your wedding music is the soundtrack of your big day, so if you’re looking for a talented and versatile musician to set the right tone for your special day, read on to find out more about Dan Roth, an experienced pianist and guitarist who is the perfect addition to any occasion, tailoring his performance style and repertoire to cater for any wedding day musical request.
I was born in Nyc ..went to FAME (High School of Music and Art) and have played guitar and piano since forever.
I started playing at coffee houses in Greenwich Village when I was 12.
I heard R&B on my little radio from about 5 years old and only wanted to be a musician.
I went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, when I was 28 I discovered Brazilian music, Jazz… and came to Spain to teach music in Barcelona (El Aula, y Taller de Musics).
Too many to mention, Mozart, I love New Orleans music..Dr John, Brazil..Jobim, JoaoDonato..and, and… Coltrane, Louis Armstrong, The Beatles, Miles…each changed and enlarged music forever!
I’ve been playing at weddings since forever…If I play alone I definitely prefer piano. But if there’s at least a bass player…or band I’m equally at home with guitar or piano.
Being from Nyc,well I have played all the American styles..R&R, Folk, Reggae, Jazz, Blues…
I also compose a lot. I mostly do pretty accessible Funky-Jazz.
I try to play the right music for the occasion..It’s not the same as a concert by “Dani Roth &Friends”, in a theatre, or a corporate event or wedding.
Ed Sheeran, Louis Capaldi, Adele, Soul, Beatles, Bossa Nova, Moon River, Imagine…
It’s great to contribute to their happy day…and add class to the event!
Hobbies..I write, love nature, been 3x to India…the usual!

*Mandinga Songs of Brazil
